Absolutely worth it!

Fraser Island was a lot of fun. It was a different experience to drive in the sand. We saw a lot of different things. Food was delicious and accommodation all right. Friendly stuff. Would have been better with no rain, but it is what it is with the wether. Whitsundays was even better. There was no wind to sail but it was still good. Snorkelling was amazing! You can see so much... food was good as well. It is a really good price for this two tours!

Great Trip, great hosts!

The Fraser Tour was awesome, we had a great group and a great guide (thanks Scotty!) The food was good and there was a lot to see. The Whitsunday Tour was great too, Captain Kev is one of a kind. If you can handle his humour and cursing, you will have a really fun time with him (thanks a lot mate!). We think a one day trip would be enough to explore the Whitsundays but if you like snorkelling, this is your trip.

amazing!!

I did the tour with two friends and we all agree to say that the tour was amazing! We did sailing and one of my friend was driving the boat. The boat is big so there is enough space to lay o the deck. We have seen a whale humpback and her baby, many turtles and also the diving spots are good with lots of corals and fishes. We landed on Whitehaven beach and could see a shark and lots of stingrays. The crew is excellent and very funny. Especially the captain who is just hilarious. The food is also good and the mattress pretty confortable. I would definitely do it again!!

Disappointing

I was thinking a lot whether to leave a review or not but at the end, I decided it is better. Whitsundays tour: Pro: - This is not a party boat, it more for chilling and enjoying the sun and the cruise Cons: - The tour includes 3 snorkelling spots, all the three were terrible. The places we went, there were no fishes at all and coral was all dead - My friends a few weeks before went with other tours and showed me amazing photos of themselves swimming with giant fishes, a lot of colorful live corals and dozens of turtles. Funny enough, we did not see any turtles in the two days. And it is not about luck, it is about the location and permits where the boat can go - A few days later I met a girl on Fraser Island, she had the same experience: / I am very easy to please, never ever gave a bad review but this trip is something that I regret. You are only here once, very likely that you will never come back so pay a bit more, but guarantee the experience for yourself with a better tour. Fraser Island Pro: - Here the staff was amazing, probably the best guides during my trip on the East Coast - Informative, knowledgeable, funny, kind, they were there to make you feel great - The accommodation was nice and clean - Food was plenty, fresh and delicious Cons: - They don't have the licence to go to Lake McKenzie on a 3 day tour, they took you to Lake Birrabeen - When I booked my tour, I thought it is evident that we will go there, as this is the most famous place on the island and the most beautiful one. Actually this was the main reason why I booked and I only found out two days before the departure (they sent us an e-mail with the itinerary) that we will not go there. At this time, you have no chance to cancel and book another one and since you book this as a combo, no chance for a refund if you do not go... All in all the tour was good, but I just cannot forgive missing Lake McKenzie as this was supposed to be the highlight of my Australian travels. Please put in the tour description that the tour misses that everyone on the tour was surprised and disappointed.

Almost Worth It

FRASER - This is your typical backpacker trip. If that's what you want, you'll really enjoy this! The food was great, tours were wonderful, cars were great fun. I will say, however, that our guide Scott needs to be more conscious of how he touches the women in the group. From the very beginning he was handsy with all the girls and it only progressed. Working with international people, and young people at that, he should be made aware that that is not acceptable. Otherwise our guides and staff were very friendly and helpful, but that was not ok and everyone on the trip noticed it. WHITSUNDAYS - The one other negative comment on google reviews summarized all my words. Ripoff, rude, unpleasant trip. Is the reef beautiful? Yes. Are the islands nice? Of course. But spend a few more bucks and go on a nicer boat with a nicer crew/captain. Kevin treated us like pest stowaways from the first minute. He was exceptionally rude to those who didn't speak English as a first language with no cross-cultural understanding. He treated his crew terribly and passengers even worse which left us quiet, afraid to ask questions, and on-edge the whole trip. Simple questions were treated as annoyances, comments made about how 'stupid' the passengers were in front of said customers, and almost no information was shared. We were even told not to wear sunscreen because it will coat the coral with it and prevent them from receiving light rays, which is absurdly incorrect. The comments made about asking for positive reviews or the young girls in his crew would be made to return to their previous terrible jobs is accurate as we experienced the same thing. It is a shame because people who have had another crew/captain have said their trip was amazing. Such a pity and cannot believe I paid even a dollar to be treated like a nuisance.
